Evanthia's Gift is a beautifully written story with incredible character that will stay on your mind even if you have already finished reading.
This book is the first of The Gift Series, and it is one for the ages. This story is one of the most real and passionate novel's I have read in a really long time. If I could compare this book to any other book it would be Little Women because of the close family and heartbreaking moment that Effie was able to create. The pace and flow of this kept me earning for more and it a wonderful feeling (probably not as wonderful as knowing I had the second book ready to start reading as soon as I wrote this review.) to have.
I will not lie, I am Leary of books that are more than 500 pages and is the first part/beginning of a series. However, this book doesn't seem to be that long, it is close to 550 pages but its this wonderful literary piece that makes you think and feel in ways you may never have felt or ways you haven't felt in a really really long time.
Effie, I want to thank you for the copy of the first two books of this series, I have not started the second one (but trust me when I say that I will after I post this) but I know that if it is half as good as Evanthia's Gift than it will be well worth the read. This is the only book I have ever wanted to rate more than a 5 star. If I could I would rate this a 6 or 7 star. This book is absolute perfection.
Overall Rating: 6/7 out of 5 Star
